It's another slow day in the trial of Police Capt. Earle Kynette in the Harry Raymond bombing ... In the meantime, let's take a look at former police investigator Fletcher E. Felts, whose father was one of the longest-serving officers in the department. Felts kills a police detective lieutenant with a Luger after an argument on a streetcar.  He says he had a brain operation a year before and doesn't recall the shooting, explaining that "I wouldn't harm a dog." He's judged insane and sent to Camarillo.

Bonus fact: Felts once served with Raymond as a police investigator.
